Scholarships

Magical Gorilla Adventures has been organizing budget gorilla trekking tours in Uganda and Rwanda and safaris within East Africa for the past eight years. We are pleased to announce our company’s $1200 scholarship program which is available to students pursuing an undergraduate in tourism, environmental studies or any other related course.

We trust the fact that all students deserve the best and want to give a hand to them achieving goals in their studies. This is also a way of giving back to people, students in particular. We believe they will keep benefiting the tourism industry.

We believe university and college are a strong channel for the students’ achievements. We are bridging this gap between education and talent.

This is why we have decided to initiate a $1200 Magical Gorilla scholarship program.

The scholarship funds should be used to pay for expenses such as scholastic materials, tuition and accommodation for each academic year from 2019 to 2024.
